Huinesoron has just left Hobbiton.
The hint points strongly at EREINION, but I can't find a single anagram for anything useful in there.

Poking through the rest of House Finwe, Middle-earth's #1 source of extraneous names (Aragorn notwithstanding), doesn't shake loose anything obvious. It's shocking how few E- names there are in there, actually.

(It's also shocking how many of them died early. Of Finwe's 15 Silm-canon grandchildren, only Galadriel and Maglor survive the First Age!)

Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Just to get it on this page:

URWEN: She’s only German around us, subjectively.
NIENOR: ... for mortal men, in trouble? Alternatively, for a woman.
TURIN: Shroud him.
ISILDUR: He’s small fry between vowels and liquid.
MIRIEL: More citruslike, or a French sleuth? Confound her!
ELENWE: She rotates novel shelter.
LOTHO: Implement, aspirate, mingle for him!
YAVANNA'S TREES: Gleaming, resplendent things!
DERUFIN: He puts an impolite spin on a fish’s appendage.
E: Signal backwards? Tor splits apart and mingles a little before he appears.
AREDHEL: She’s ruddy and healthy: yes, both - combined!
THEODRED: He stepped, mark! Confusticate it!
HUAN: Attila gives first to one of his own? Beast!
SAEROS: Sibilants swallow confectionery for him.

Not Ereinion, I'm afraid.

And not Finwe's house, as I think you have guessed.

The chap I'm looking for was the very first of a certain kind.

Good try, but no.

Erchamion? No real justification, just clutching at untimely dead E epesses/alternative names.

No, but the closest guess yet. *Very* close kindred to the guy I'm looking for.

Precisely!

NIENOR: ... for mortal men, in trouble? Alternatively, for a woman.
TURIN: Shroud him.

Over to Huinesoron.

Pervinca - that was excellent! I still really like the Turin clue, and the Urwen one is a masterpiece that wastes exactly no words.

Mine... doesn't do that. ^_^

1. Morwen's daughter, sent away - A hobbit disenvowelled by everything - First contact (for many)
2. Lorien's unwitting betrayer - The classic dawn bird - The world turned upside-down
3. Mrs. Bilbo - A shiny rock, or perhaps a bit more like me - The first of its kind (ever)
4. The only female Nazgul - I'm out, I tripped (accented) - Under the iron crown
5. The princess of the shore - A Latin rock, an Elvish maid - Darkness in the darkness
6. Legolas' first best friend, but in real life... - Not a Maia, not a flower, and definitely not genderbent Orome - Just below Erebor

Each clue has three parts; I won't tell you what they correspond to, but for kindness' sake, I have put the three parts in the same order every time.

Glad you liked it, Hs. BTW, when you have a moment, could you tell us what the 'elements' were on your last password? Like the 'wood' one was because he lived in a wood? I got some of them, but not all.

...

Well ... I guess each clue starts with a person. Then there's a thing. Then another thing.

1. Nienor? / ... / ...
2. ... / lark?/ ...

5. Finduilas of Dol Amroth? / petra? / ...
6. .../ .../ Dale?
